Happy Mom's Day

...so I call my Mom. I was in a blue mood and very happy that she was very upbeat this morning. Upbeat enough to get me back to smiling. :)

After exchanging Happy Mother's Day wishes she said: "...and how is your Pussy?" I said: "She's fine." (..thinking that I need to make an appointment for my yearly checkup) She says: "My pussy is all by herself now". (I'm thinking...WTF?...and am in tears laughing) Sometimes I forget that we call cats "Pussy" in Germany.

After that, very uplifting conversation, I used a coupon for a free haircut after researching on line on what I wanted to do. By 11 o'clock I was at the salon, asking for my one and only favorite hairstylist, Jenna, armed with a printed out picture, to cut off my hair. My hair kind of looks like yours, Teri. I never thought that I would say: "short hair feels amazing".

At about one o'clock today, I removed the two panels (I thought is was just one) with the help of Kenny and Aaron, from the back of the Evil Twin. Sure enough....there was very little room beside the wooden box that houses the sound system. All three of us tried to get our arms in the space to see if we could unscrew the faulty bulb, but no! None of us could.

Since I already had my all time favorite power tool out, I was very tempted to just start unscrewing screws until the entire system was in small enough pieces to remove.

Before I totally lost control, I called my son, T-Jay, to see if he remembered where I had gotten those red bulbs from. Good thing I did, because he told me that there should be a spare bulb in the glove compartment....and there was!!! :) He also said that he could change the bulb without me going to extremes.

Needless to say, this really made my day!!! Everything is back together and I've got lights. Thank you, T-Jay! :)

Now...off to study up on my inspection for tomorrow. I'm still nervous about it, but at least I don't have a ton of other things nagging me.

I hope that everyone had a great Mother's Day....I know that mine was absolutely awesome!!!


  1. Whoa, you had some of the best presents a mom could get on her day today!

    Can't wait to see your new "do"...yeah, I don't know what it is, but even I love running my fingers thru my short hair...if that ain't love enuf (or is that tuff enuf).

    Glad your puss is purrin' too and I need to make my yearly appt too, lol.

    Great about the car! I still wanna ride sometime!

  2. lol...yes it's been a perfect day. Wish me luck tomorrow.
    Happy Mother's Day to you also, after all you are the Mom to so many. :)

  3. How to post a link: Ok, when you make a new post, you will see in the beige header b i "a thing that looks like a grape with glasses" " abd, photo and movie. You will already have copied the link you want, hit the grape, delete off the http:// and paste in your link, then you will see it appear on your post, but at the end of the link you will see >< and in between those first two arrows, you type in caps look better the name you want to call your link, PHOTOGRAPHY OF KARIN or whatever.

    I haven't yet figured out how to make them the color I'd like though


I know it is only the ramblings and rants of one woman, but I would love to hear from you.
